Code Red to Release 'Terror Circus'   

December 4, 2007 "Terror Circus" (aka, "Nightmare Circus" and "Barn of the Naked Dead") is finally getting a DVD release, courtesty of Code Red.

This film is actually a relatively tame horror film from 1974. Three showgirls on their way to Las Vegas have car trouble and are stuck all night out in the desert. The next morning cheerful Andre (Andrew Prine) offers them help in fixing their car. However, Andre is really a maniac with a lot of family problems; his mother ran out on him when he was a child so now he keeps kidnapped women chained up in his barn and trains them to perform circus tricks. Andre's father is still around of course, but because the old homestead is next to a nuclear test site he has been transformed into a raving homicidal mutant that Andre keeps locked up in a shed.

"We didn't want to annouce this film so soon as it's not in our 2008 planned release schedule yet. However, we could not keep it a secret any longer and want to let the fans know we have made a deal with the rights owners of the missing exploitation film BARN OF THE NAKED DEAD (aka TERROR CIRCUS) directed by Alan Rudolph! This is the first authorized U.S home video release (according to the rights owner, the vhs wasn't even authorized) and we hope the vault elements the rights owner will be sending us will make this one fantastic DVD. Andrew Prine has politely declined to give us an interview for this film, but some of the other people involved have shown interest."

More to come.
